The Terrace

Springtime in Sydney has a new soundtrack: The Terrace

Produced by the City of Sydney

This spring, Sydney’s newest live music venue is The Terrace. For nine nights, the historic Sydney Town Hall Terrace becomes the backdrop for a garden bar with the best live music the city has to offer – and it’s all free!

Let us know you’re coming by joining our Facebook event.

The Terrace celebrates Sydney’s rich live music scene with a diverse line-up including a special acoustic set by Dave & Joji from the chart-topping Gang of Youths, indie-pop darlings Microwave Jenny, and the Latin jazz stylings of The Voice star Emma Pask.

That’s along with intimate sets by Jones Jnr, Pat Capocci and Richard In Your Mind, and an unmissable performance by one of Sydney’s favourite sons: Paul Capsis with Café at the Gate of Salvation, in which one of our most iconic voices sings alongside a 20-person gospel choir.

DJ Bubu will spin the decks with disco and 80s hits with easy-to-learn dance tutorials on Kids’ Day.  Art and craft activities will keep the kids busy when they are all danced out.

The Terrace is designed by sustainable-style gurus Amber Road and takes inspiration from the garden rooftop renewals of New York to create a lush green oasis in the heart of the city. The Terrace is open daily from 5pm so you can enjoy a post-work drink and bite to eat to the soundtrack of Sydney’s best DJs.
